Tornabuoni Art Paris is proud to announce the most comprehensive international survey ever to be held in a private gallery of Afro Libio Basaldella (1912-1976), better known as Afro. On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the artist’s monumental fresco, The Garden of Hope created for the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, Tornabuoni Art will hold an unprecedented retrospective dedicated to Afro, at its gallery in the heart of the Marais. This exhibition, produced in collaboration with the Fondazione Archivio Afro, will present around 50 artworks from the 1930s to the 1970s, and the final room will be entirely dedicated to preparatory drawings of Afro’s majestic mural fresco The Garden of Hope.
